Some of the most difficult long distance paths in Great Britain can be found in the North of Scotland. One of them, the Cape Wrath Trail is particularly well known for its toughness which includes sections where paths seen on the ground come to an abrupt end leaving the walker to navigate their way over unknown ground to the next recognisable point of reference. This walk, as are some of the other wilderness walks in this region of Great Britain is also well known for river crossings which have to be forded because there is no bridge. In fact, do not expect the home comforts you would expect on walks further south up here. And for the majority of the walks bring a tent. You will probably need one.
